The Democratic Republic of Hariz is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 437 million Harizians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Education. The average income tax rate is 63.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Harizian economy, worth 14.0 trillion Shevrens a year, is quite specialized and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Uranium Mining, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 32,103 Shevrens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration, funerals are often rudely interrupted by juggling clowns shouting for volunteers from the audience, more than one company makes the board game Monopoly, and veterans are directed into environmental cleanup operations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hariz's national animal is the Draconiquis, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hariz is ranked 190,282nd in the world and 4,760th in The North Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 14.0 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
